Something I’ve been curious about for a while. :o
We all know that there is an “approved” basic form of praying the rosary that involves more than picking up the rosary and starting on decade one. Sign of the Cross, Apostles Creed, Our Father, 3 Hail Marys and so on until the Hail Holy Queen. Fatima Prayer if one is inclined to include it.
But what about praying a single decade? Is there an “approved” form for this as well? Or does one just make the Sign of the Cross and start right at the Our Father? Are the mysteries incorporated into the habit of saying a daily decade.
I ask because I spotted the “hate praying the rosary” topic and I found myself relating to the OP a great deal. Though I do NOT “hate” the rosary, I also struggle with the full rosary (I feel a greater calling to the Divine Mercy anyway). But I can pray a decade without a struggle. So I was wondering if there is a “proper” way to do it.
